AOC Parkchester Book Bag Giveaway

AOC Book Bag Giveaway in Parkchester

By Robert Press

There were about one thousand book bags waiting for Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to give them out to the children of Parkchester. In the parking lot at the corner of Westchester Avenue and White Plains Road the Mujumder Foundation had finished giving out awards to outstanding students going into high school, and community leaders. 

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez arrived shortly afterwards to say a few words on the stage, greeted the next Bronx Borough President, current Councilwoman Vanessa Gibson, and then went over to her booth, set up by her team to give out all the book bags that were there. As you will see in the photos everyone loved Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez.

There is talk that during redistricting next year Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez could pick up Coop-City, while giving up some of her Queens part of the district. That could make it a  50/50 district between queens and the Bronx.

The Ocasio-Cortez booth is all ready, the only thing missing is Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez.

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez asked this young girl, ‘Which book bag would you like’?

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez suggests this book bag to this young girl.

Having such a wonderful way with children, the young girl takes the book bag the congresswoman suggested. 

It wasn’t only the girls, but also the boys, as this young man was happy to get this book bag from the congresswoman.
